Native Nevadan from Pahrump. Ghost town and history enthusiast. Member of Pahrump Masonic Lodge #54, York Rite Masons and Shriners. Member of Artesia Odd Fellows Lodge #43 (I.O.O.F.). Avid hunter, fisherman and outdoorsman. 15 year Union Member (but not a Democrat). Life member of the NRA. I am fascinated by Nevada History, IE: The ranching and mining pioneers that came before us. I will do everything in my power to see that this history doesn't simply fade away. I can't stop nature from collapsing old buildings, gravestones, mining relics, etc. However, I can lay my eyes upon and photograph as much as possible, so that future generations may be able to see it as well. My grandchildren may never get to see much of this history in person because it will probably be gone. Therefore, I photograph.

RE: John Vlaovich Yes we looked at the new pictures. I don't think the sight has been kept up like it used to be a few years ago. Just wish I was closer, but with age and health time just marches on. My grandmother Annie (Angelica) sure did a good job, and also the organizations that he belong to in those days. They are the ones most likely that put the sword there. Hopefully some of the great great grandchildren would be interested in our genealogy and would check it out someday.
Thanks again for all of your good help, Vera Stanovich-Creech
John Vlaovich Hello Trevor, I want you to know I appreciate you taking the time to check on my grandfathers grave sight. Just sorry to learn that he sword is not there. I do remember seeing other pictures and the sword. Passible some vandalism and that is sad. Thanks again for clearing it up. Sincerely Vera Stanovich
Cowleys Hi Trevor, Thank you for all your work photographing the headstones in Lone Mountain Cemetery. My interest is in Clarence and Maybelle Cowley, who are part of my extended family history research (they are descended from the Cowleys who emigrated to the USA from the Isle of Man). I would be grateful if you could give me your permission to add the picture of their headstone to my public family tree on ancestry.co.uk. I would of course acknowledge you as the photographer. If you're not happy with this, that's fine.
